    I only recently tripped over the "technique" of redscaling, so of course I had to give it a go ... some results follow ... I doubt I'll do it for a second time, but it's always nice to try something new (if indeed it is new) ...

    I have some old 35mm color slides from the early 50's that have this look now. Its family stuff and I am amazed and happy that the slides still exist...that world certainly doesn't!

    I actually had to look up "red scale" photography. I like your results.

    Hmm, I suppose when I said I wouldn't try it for a second time, I really meant a third time ... I have to admit I went to the trouble of using the same method on another roll, but this time developing it myself in black & white chemistry ... I'd wondered, given how redscale exposure takes place, whether I might thereby get a bit of a pseudo "infrared" effect ... it wasn't fabulously successful, but these two give a flavour of what I was after ... however, I really don't expect I'll try again ... not now I've bought some infrared film anyway :smile:

    there's a couple more on my Flickr stream Bill, but I don't consider the rest of the two rolls I did worthy of making public ... it was just a bit of fun with some £land flim really

    oh go on then, just one more, to please Bill ... I quite like this one in a very "lo-fi" sort of way ...

    I hate to be a whiner (or whinger for those of you in the UK), but I want more of these.....and I want them now.

    A friend made some redscale for me, developers messed it up ended up with zilch. I felt bad because he did that to replace the roll I sent him [his lab chopped up the negatives]. Anyway, like your results. Have some infrared film myself I should be using too.

  11. What a great thread! Loving the images. Film used to be SO common but it's the stuff of legend now and hard to replicate properly in software. Keep it up!!
